First Trout of 2009 (in Arizona though)

Added a vacation day to my trip last week to the Bamboo Project workshop in AZ. As usual, this post is not in order or in a particular time based sense, but I got around to it today.
Arrived in Page AZ a little after mid day Friday. Looking out across the tarmac at some real geography.

Toto, we're not in Kansas anymore.

Yes, I did catch a trout.

First trout of 2009, on the egg fly dropper off of a weighted cactus bugger.

Happy New Year

from Ted Williams blog at FFR

"American Museum of Fly Fishing Apparently Run by Morons "

"Just heard from an unimpeachable source that the American Museum of Fly Fishing is going to make none other than VP Dick Cheney--the Anti-Christ of trout and all things wild--the guest of honor at its spring meeting. I had thought that this outfit had a modicum of common sense. Obviously, I was mistaken. Hey, American Museum of Fly Fishing: Get a life! Wake up! Smell the coffee! Where you been these last eight years?
